This should be my 2017 race schedule …

Okay, I think I’ve got my complete 2017 race schedule figured out. I think. Which is a definite maybe. But, let me explain it a little bit. I have a race each month except December. I might add a race in December, but I am not planning on it. It’s a good rest month after a long year of running. My busiest month is June. I have seven races planned for the month. Yes, seven….

RACE #131: Huntsville Marathon

You know, I never thought I would say this — but, I kinda love running marathons. The half marathon is still my favorite, but I really love the challenge of the marathon. Everything from the training to actually running of the race — it’s so different from any less distanced race. Marathons have been pretty hard for me to run.

RACE RECAP #76: Huntsville Half Marathon

I really try not to take my running for granted. Each race is a gift. Each race is a triumph and a victory. But, at the same time, each race is a party and yet another race to count towards my 180 goal. I don’t want to let these races blend together to be forgotten, especially this next upcoming eight weeks when I am races every weekend. I was really excited to run the Huntsville Half…

FRIDAY! FRIDAY! FRIDAY! After a week of no running this week made up for it. I still have a lingering cough, but other than that I am fine and rearing to run the Huntsville Half Marathon tomorrow morning. I also started a new competition at my gym this past Wednesday. It’s a 12 week, clean eating and exercise program that will take until December 23rd. So, yep, that goes over the holidays.All of them. It should…
